The reign of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ), having its headquarters in Chicago and Jerusalem, continued under the presidentship of its founder Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein who died recently in February this year due to cardiac arrest.
Rabbi Eckstein ruled and commanded this international charity for 35 years and raised over million dollars every year in donations from envious Christians. Yael Eckstein, the daughter of deceased Yechiel Eckstein, took over charge of her father’s legacy, as expected by most followers of IFCJ.
About Yael Eckstein’s personal life
Yael Eckstein was born in Evanston, Illinois in United States, but completed her education in Israel. New York, and Jerusalem. Her alma maters were Torat Chesed Seminary in Israel, followed by Queens College in New York, and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She secured degrees in biblical studies and Jewish and sociology studies. She is now married and lives with her husband and four children in Jerusalem where her father was also living.
About Yael’s traits
Yael Eckstein has remarkable media traits. She is an expert on Jewish-Christian relations and an esteemed social services professional. She is also recognized as a published writer and regular writer as well. She is also the author of two books; her first book Holy Land Reflections was published in 2012, and second book Spiritual Cooking with Yael was published in 2014. As a regular writer, she writes blogs and op-eds for The Jerusalem Post and The Times of Israel. She performed briefing and participated in Panel Discussion on Religious Persecution in the Middle East in Washington, D.C., and also addressed at global events.
Yael was a prominent personality due to her own achievements, and her recognition as a daughter of IFCJ President’s daughter was also prominent, but she herself acquired the status of the President of IFCJ after her father. The status of Yael has upgraded, and Jews have more expectations from Yael than her father.
